is a good man. drive south and you come to culpeper which gave john mccain 54% of the vote in 2008. it received a memorable visit from lyndon johnson. during the 1960 presidential campaign lyndon johnson delivered to the south and he succeeded. the first stop on the whistle stop train tour of the south was culpeper, virginia. as the train was leaving johnson ran to the rear and shouted, "what did it nixon ever do for culpeper?" you can register for in person absentee balloting. it will vote for, because for them, this election is about hope and jobs. >> i am still blessed to have a job but there are millions who do not have jobs and they need jobs. >> nobody we talk to was willing to say for sure that their candidate would win. it is that close. because of hurricane sandy, some counties have extended voting hours through saturday. you'll have to check to see how late they will go. >> there is another battle going on and it has nothing to do with the presidential election. >> 77% of registered latino voters say they will go to the polls on tuesday. that could we had a good group of
that president bush won more of the tidewater region than did john mccain in 2008. if you were president obama and you were mitt romney, where would you focus your resources, larry? guest: you can tell by where they are visiting. romney spends a lot of time in the richmond area. he needs a big vote out of those localities, some of which voted for president obama. other various conservative localities like chesterfield county went as high as 45% for president obama in 2008. there's no way for republicans to win statewide and allow centreville to get 45% of the votes to obama. they're both campaigning in northern virginia. it is the linchpin of a statewide victory for president obama. he needs to do well in the big, growing burgeoning prince gallia county and loudoun county -- prince george county and loudoun county, as well as fairfax. yes, the two areas are small, but trees and rocks and acres don't vote, at least in most states and localities. host: what kind of the voting system is used in virginia? guest: the computerized systems are used almost everywhere. we have eliminated paper ballots
difference. barack obama had 53% to john mccain's 43%. what does it tell you? for weeks we have been hearing the media paint a storyline while obama is ahead in early voting. now we know that isn't true. particularly in states like ohio, florida, ohio -- >> dana: nevada. >> andrea: same thing, nevada. ohio fewer dems voted in ohio compared to 2008. 30,000 more republicans have voted. if obama had that lead with mccain and long at 2008, but only led by three points with likely voters romney leads the likely voters by five points. he won bison overall. if you look at the same panorama, it's all over. >> bob: in reality, you talk about the final vote in 2008 versus a week left to go to vote. people who vote early. you have to separate absenteeism from early voting. two separate things. people who vote early are senior citizens and they normally do. >> andrea: who leads with senior citizens? mitt romney leads. >> bob: right. >> andrea: independent and women. 3-point turnout advantage this time around swayed ten points to -- >> bob: you are taking something on election day when they did the count
internal targets and the romney campaign is doing much better than john mccain did in 2008. that secondary aspect, doing better than john mccain is insufficient. john mccain did virtually nothing in early voting. the romney campaign is doing much better but it's a low bar. the obama campaign feels very good about its own metrics and believes by the time election day actually arrives, they'll have sizeable leads in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly even in florida, enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day. >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is becoming a huge and important trend in american presidential politics. >> thank you, major. >> major garret, thank you so much. >>> time to show you some of this morning's headlines from around the globe. los angeles times says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern california campus. four people were wounded and two people have been detained. officials shut down the campus and urged students to
john mccain 4 years ago, because of early voting, one of the reason that democrats are so panicked renew, one reason they are trying to spend every possible tea leaf and discredit every national poll they could looking at hard -- they are looking at hard numbers from data poll numbers could one state they are not behind early vote numbers is colorado. problem is colorado happens to be one of the republican's strongest early voting states. there was a survey, by pew i believe, shows that obama is winning early vote by 7 points, he won is by 16 16, 4 years ago. lou: as we look at numbers, the fox polls the two men are locked up, 46% each. and that happens to be where the real clear politics poll of polls has this race. knotted up, even. with 5 days remaining before the election. your thoughts? >> well, here is the thing, momentum is with mitt romney, storm is a little bit of a bump. his numbers have been going up. and president obama's numbers down. with regard to early voting as well, democrat strategy to get as many people out to vote who are reliable voters while republican strate
: this is the 2008 presidential race. barack obama way ahead of john mccain. and it is my understanding that in the polls recently for this election that romney is inching closer to obama, is th correct? >> it is correct. it is in within the margin of error. >> what do you make of the surge? minnesota has been a blue state what do you make for romney? >> it is a conservative minnesota, gretchen. in 2010 minnesota won both studies of the legislatures, republicans did. we are seag a move to a conservative trend in minnesota. >> gretchen: the governor seat went to a democrat in a tight, tight election and senator al franken won with 312 vote,many of them disputed and michele bachmann is in a tight race or do it see it that way? >> i have known mitch mitch for 10 years and one of the most dedicate hard working conservatives we have in congress and i believe she will prevail in that race. >> gretchen: she's up against tom graves. we have mitchell bachmann, republican 51 percent . jim graves 45 percent. and so that's outside of the margin of error . they had a recent debate i believe. did the
, and understands that running is very hard on families. it is very tough. after the last campaign when john mccain won, made this recording for my husband. sweetie, i am never doing this again. he laughed. he said say that after every pregnancy. true, true, and yet i have five boys. i will tell you when the fifth boy -- those are the days when you never knew when you were having -- when he popped out, i said that ist and all i got. it was a long time waiting for the first granddaughter. i have five sons. you had a daughter. i have 18 grandchildren. guess how many are boys -- 13. i am surrounded. by the way i have all brothers. i had to learn how to play football and baseball, and play and roughhouse and everything else. life is interesting, and the boys taught me an amazing lessons, and i appreciate them so much. i could have nearly killed them when they were kids, but they taught me how to be open and how to be open with your feelings and how to express your feelings openly. i was shy. the thought that i am even up here on the stage with a microphone in my hand is wonderful. i spent my entire ele
was beating john mccain in early voting by 19 points. democrats are famous for their get out the vote effort that precedes election today, early voting tends to favor them. look how it did in 08 obama 19 at that time. fast ford today, governor romney is beating president obama by 7 points marking a 26-point slide for the commander-in-chief. chris stirewalt is our fox news digital politics editor and host of power play on fox news.com. is that correct, chris? the early voting tends to favor the democrats. it seems like republicans don't like early voting, they complain about it because it favors the other side but not so according to this poll in this election. >> that is exactly right, megyn. the truth is democrats have long pushed to extend voting as long as possible. no election day, they want election month. they want more times to get their voters to the polls. there are more democrats than republicans. republicans vote with higher intensity usually than democrats. when we see a pupl lik number like pew's that the republican candidate has gone ahead when you're talking about a challenger

% of the vote. and barack obama just carried ohio four years ago, but because john mccain had really done no outreach to the evangelicals and they were loaded up on our colleague mike huckabee, they stayed home. 300,000 evangelicals in ohio didn't vote in 2008. obama won by 260,000 votes. if they come out in large numbers more romney and ryan in ohio next tuesday, as they did for george bush in 2004 and 2000, i think that romney could take that state. stuart: now, are the evangelicals voting positively for mitt romney? because they like mitt romney? or are they voting negatively against president obama? because they don't like president obama? >> well, the good news for romney is that it's a combination of both. romney has done outreach to them. and richard land of the southern baptist convention has endorsed him. did that yesterday. he met with billy graham about three weeks ago, graham is publicly supporting him. and i'm told that his selection of paul ryan was a huge plus, because ryan is a practicing catholic, very religious, the evangelicals, like paul ryan. on the negative side, the
either for john mccain or barack obama in 2008. one entire side of the voting population in this upcoming election is the portion of our country that lives on the edge. as we continue to cope with and rescue people from and now recover bodies from, the impact of this one storm on the most populated part of america's coastline today, the governor of new york state has been again and again trying to draw people's attention to this not being just one event, but a challenge for the whole country that events like this might now be happening with increased frequency. not just in new york, but in all of these heavily populated places, that before now had a fairly predictable relationship with the body of water, with the ocean, that they abut. what is that predictability? that balanced and expectation, developed over the past couple of centuries, and these cities on the water is now over. mostly this gets talked about in terms of the people denying that climate change is a real thing, and big talk about whether we should try to stop climate change and global warming. but that may be getting resol
? that is the exact same number that obama beat john mccain by in ohio. so what we're saying -- karl rove is saying that all the polling numbers say one thing but when push comes to shove, who is planning on voting for whom, the number goes the other way to romney. quick point on the campaigns. i'm thrilled they're back. they're both back at it. mitt romney, went into it and brought things back where they should be. they should be on the economy. we have that huge jobs number tomorrow morning. romney points out that he is all over the jobs, he is the one that creates jobs. obama went to a weird place. talking about green energy, i don't know where -- >> dana: we'll talk about that later. >> bob: can i point out -- >> dana: kimberly and greg haven't had a chance to talk. >> bob: sorry. >> dana: kimberly, karl's prediction was he believes that it will be 51-48 with romney winning, carrying at least 279 electoral college votes. your thoughts? >> kimberly: romney by 3%. i think he will go for it, he will win with 280 electoral votes. i believe he is going to take ohio by margin large enough to be conte
that was a peared back proposal from earlier proposals which involved principal write-downs. and even john mccain when he was campaigning wanted to set up a government facility to buy the funds and restructure them. that's what tarp was supposed to be about. >> rose: why do you think the were not listeningo that? >> i think at the bottom line, th philosophy was just focus on the big banks. focus on the big banks, make sure we have plenty of money. and hank pretty much says this in his book and i think the philosophy with larry summers was the same. if you recall, there was an allotment of dell 700 billion. they couldn't draw it down because nancy pelosi other ands had told them they need a loan modification program. when congress approved tarp, they thought they wereppring troued aet relief, the program to get the loans off the books of the banks and restructured. they had to say they had some kind of foreclosure program to get the second $350 billion. i think what they were focused on was any program. they didn't really care. and they were told by a lot of people, including me, that the program
in montana. >> so john mccain is heading to montana. >> ryssdal: and they carefully plot strategy to help shape the message for voters. >> also we can sort of highlight mccain's hypocrisy for campaigning with rehberg, because mccain is such a fiscal hawk and denny's such a big spender obviously being a member of the approps committee. >> yeah. it's not nearly as sexy as i think some people would want it to be. >> okay, thanks, folks. >> no, this is mostly public information. you just need to know where to look at it. and what you do is you put together the political history of a candidate-- every vote that they've ever taken, every political statement that they had made, any contradictions that you might find. business dealings that they might have that they might have had before being in congress. or even business dealings they had while they were in congress. >> i'll never support nor take a pay raise. >> ryssdal: here's where their research pays off. they share it with other outside groups, who then make ads that show up in montana-- ads like this one, made by a group called citizens f
then candidate barack obama beat senator john mccain with 52% of the vote in virginia. president obama's win at that time was notable was virginia had backed republicans in every presidential election from dwight eisenhower in 1952 all the way through george w. bush in 2004 except for the lyndon johnson landslide that happened in 1964. that is your history lesson for virginia. bill: early voting is resuming in maryland, it was su suspended for two days. voters turning out in big numbers, many saying they did not want to wait until the last minute. >> it's convenient to get it done ahead of time. i can't speak for other people, but for me one less thing to do next tuesday. >> before the storm i would have said it was the storm. now i think people want to make sure they have an opportunity, you know, to get in and voice their opinion. bill: the early voting hours and days to vote extended in maryland so that may explain why we are seeing a lot of folks there voting early. martha: let's go back to a live look right now at the jersey shore. my goodness, that is the boardwalk in point pleasant wh
campaign is hitting its own targets and the romney campaign is doing better than john mccain in 2008. that secondary aspect doesn't mean much. by the time election day actually arrives, they will have sizable lead in new hampshire, iowa, nevada and possibly in florida enough to carry those states across the finish line. >> major, thanks. cbs is projecting that four out of ten voters will have voted by election day so that -- >> 31% in 2008, could be as high as 40%. this is a huge trend in american politics. >> major garrett thank you so much. time now to show you this morning's headlines from around the globe. the "los angeles times" says a gunman opened fire at a halloween party on the university of southern cal university. two people have been detained. hours later they gave the all clear. >>> the "philadelphia inquirer" reports jerry sandusky has been transferred to maximum security prison that houses most of pennsylvania's death row inmates. he's serving a 30 year sentence for child molestation. >> the "wall street journal" reports on a major step towards personalized medicine. t
population and retired veteran population as well. john mccain carried that very narrowly. it was practically a 50-50 with obama. there's no way it's going to be that close this time. but i want to see what presented president obama gets in virginia beach. if the bows out of the water, that tells me something. if it's a close race, that tells me something. just a few examples. host: washington, d.c., on our independent line. caller: i am interested to know where you think independent voters are going to go in this election. i don't mean just in terms of republican or democrat. how are the third party candidates going to affect the election? in particular, gary johnson? a lot of people tend to think he will take away votes from the republican nominee, but i think in new mexico and michigan he is taking votes away from obama. if you could give me some insight into what you think will happen there. guest: that is a good question because we tend to oversimplified about independent and third-party candidates. we need to remember first of all some people turn out to vote for them that would not mak
with the "washington post" piece. republicans say that romney's team is far ahead of what senator john mccain had in place for years ago. but the extent of the organization and voter contact for the rahm the folks is miles ahead of where mccain was. there is no comparison. given there was a tough primary fight there for the republicans, that possibly they have a better ground game in place than the democrats. guest: that is not true. the democrats and president obama have been on the ground since the primary ended in february. the classic story was he drove through manchester and was locked, shut and the sides were down. the obama campaign was up and running. in knocking on doors, making phone calls. engaged in voter contacts for months and months before the obama campaign came back to new hampshire. i would say the republicans are talking of a good ground game, but the reality is the obama ground game is much better, and that will be a crucial factor when obama wins here next tuesday. host: given that obama won the state in 2008 by nine percentage points, and the economy is not that bad in new h
defeat john mccain in 2008 in pennsylvania. jon: let me take you back into some of those fox news polls with some surprising numbers at least to me. one of them is the question, when asked, what best describes how the obama administration has handled radical muslim terrorists? 55% of americans say they think it was too soft. now this is a president who constantly talking about how, you know, under his administration we got usama bin laden. 55% say too soft on that. what do you think, bob? >> that is clearly the effect of the deadly attack in benghazi because foreign policy before that attack was a clear advantage for the president, but the controversy and contradictory statements coming from the administration has hurt president obama that poll reflects it. jon: there are questions too about how this president is handling the economy. right now only 45% say they approve. 52% disapprove. in october of 2010 i guess, the numbers were slightly lower for the president. i'm sorry, in terms of the disapproval number. 61%. so it is getting better, but still he is not looking too good when it co
deliberately stonewalling about libya? as we said a group of seniors is demanding answers today. senator john powell joins us? >> good evening, greta. >> greta: released seven letters from senator mccain and lindsay graham. they don't get answered. they were going over a period of time. are these letters sort of futile zwres to your or something happen from them? >> no, i've read the letters they ask the precisely the right questions. first of all, katherine heritage has done good reporting on day from one. david ignasius and he complimented fox news for raising these important questions. he listed a group of questions. some of which you raised here. he also says the time line of events should be provided before the election, not after the election. if i could make that point right now, you have so many questions about the commander in chief and what he did or what he didn't do. whether his orders were clear that this has to be cleared up before the election. so we the people that employ the commander in chief can make a decision whether we wanted to rehire him. and i was comment together sen
